Print out the blank hat template from atozteacherstuff.com.
Use a black sharpie to section off the hat depending on how many sticks you are using.
Color the red stripes.
Laminate or put in a sheet protector.
Your child can then use the popsicle sticks to create the red and white pattern.
This is similar to the Cat in the Hat dot marker page I created over the weekend, but I think it is a little easier. It also never hurts to reinforce concepts using different tools and textures.
With a child who can read, you could even just write the words and not color them on the stripes to practice word recognition.
This activity is good for fine motor skills, learning a simple pattern, counting (you can count by color or total), sorting by color, and color matching/recognition.
